Introducing Cambium Learning’s 2022 Impact Report
The report demonstrates Cambium's commitment to helping teachers and students feel seen, valued and supported
Today, we released our 2022 Impact Report, highlighting Cambium Learning Group’s collective work to drive improved outcomes for the people, communities, and groups we serve.
This is a pivotal time for the state of education. Challenges in the K-12 education space continue to compound—only 37% of 12th-grade students are reading at or above proficiency1, nearly 50% of teachers say they may quit within two years2, and less than 25% of 4th and 8th graders in poverty perform at grade level1. These statistics underscore the urgent need for solutions that make the greatest difference on the most critical challenges for the education community.
As a scaled leader serving K-12 education, Cambium helps to effectively address these challenges. Our company’s purpose is to help every teacher and student feel seen, valued and supported. The purpose of this report is to recognize and celebrate the significant impact the Cambium community makes in the K-12 education ecosystem, while also identifying needs and charting a clear course forward for deepening and widening support for educators, students, families and employees. More specifically, it is a combination of metrics, measures, and case studies that provide a window into 1) the outcomes we create in collaboration with our education community partners, and 2) how we do our work as we strive to live our purpose authentically within our employee community and through our educational technology solutions that accelerate change.
We are committed to prioritizing impact in an intentional way across the Cambium family, and this report serves as an opportunity to annually assess and celebrate the progress we have made toward our purpose. It provides an important moment and format to reflect on our growth and the needed work ahead.
The report also details the current state of the Cambium family’s reach and our momentum over the last year. Cambium is proud to serve 29M+ students and 1.3M+ teachers across 95% of U.S. school districts and 170+ countries. Of the students that we serve, 13.6 million are BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) and 50% attend schools where the majority qualify for free or reduced lunch.
In addition to the metrics and case studies providing insight into how Cambium is focused on impact for the K-12 community, the report also shares how we are scaling our team. According to 2022 data:
- 61% of Cambium employees are women
- 31% of Cambium employees are BIPOC
- 44% of Cambium VPs/SVPs are women
- 17% of Cambium’s VPs/SVP’s are BIPOC
- 50% of Cambium’s 12-person executive team are women, including the CEO
- >90% of Cambium employees work remotely as part of Cambium’s intentional Remote First program
Cambium has a unique opportunity as a market leader and responsibility to support our administrators, teachers, students and families. This inaugural report is a step forward for measuring and striving to improve our impact for the K-12 education community. As I reflect on the culmination of our report—the progress we’ve made and the significant work still to be done—I am proud of our collective Cambium family and our contributions to the world around us. I am filled with hope and excitement for what we can achieve together, in 2023 and beyond.
